Architas launches EPIC sustainable equity fund

Architas, part of the global AXA Group, has launched the E.P.I.C Global Equity Opportunities Fund.

Architas says the fund allows investors to make ethical and prosperous investment choices (E.P.I.C), and gives them access to three major themes centred around digital transformation, health & wealth and a sustainable planet. The fund is classified Article 9 under the European Union Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and commits to having 100% of its total assets invested in securities the firm believes are sustainable investments.

Matthieu Andre, CEO at Architas, says, “We include environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria in all of our fund selection and investment solutions, ensuring that we are aligned to the overall AXA group’s purpose, and leveraging the best opportunities across AXA Investment Managers and third-party asset managers. This enables us to build stronger propositions for our clients.
